About The Artwork

Wenqin Chen’s subject of enquiry emerged. Of equal importance, he is passionate about the dialog created between the positive and negative spaces that surround his work. As a way of expressing “the energy of space,” he emphasizes the momentum of the object to symbolize life’s release or “birth,”while extending the implied energy field to its largest range.

"All thing are curving" is Chen Wenqin’s artistic creation philosophy.  Chen Wenqin has always been concerning about the themes of space, time, and life. Modern cosmological theory holds that there is no time in the universe, and there is no time to speak of, just like the sculpture "All thing are curving" (2009). It is just like a standing egg, with a stainless steel mirror surface reflecting everything in the universe, and it is the universe. Boundless, without a beginning or an end, without a starting point or an ending symbol, it always stays there in its own state, regardless of time. But it tells us that the only function is that all things refracted are curved; It also tells us that it occupies space at this moment.  Where there is substance, there is space. When substance moves, time is the movement of substance and also records the trajectory of its movement. Human beings have this definition of space and time for their movement. In the "Time Continues in the Space of Movement" (2010) series of sculpture works, Chen Wenqin named each piece with English gerunds to convey the eternal movement of substance. Time records the infinite trajectory of spatial movement in the form of sculpture, and they will continue to move without an end. This is an eternal state of time and space.  Time exists in events rather than objects, and is used to record the development and changes of events. It is not only a point or a line, but also a surface. The movement of substance requires the action of external forces to drive the generation of events and their multidimensional development, while time also records the trajectory of event movement in multiple dimensions. As Aristotle said, "Time is merely a measure of change". The flowing time is divided by event fragments, but there is a relationship of mutual promotion, distortion, and dependence between each other. The "Superimposition of Time" (2024) series of sculpture works record the relationship between events in the form of sculptures.  On the other hand, for the movement law of time, it is the accumulation of repetition, and the increment of time is always positive. So "repetition and positive numbers" became an important language focus in the "Time Net" series of oil paintings (2018). Human beings create time, and time rules humans. Time records and weaves together every event, bending and disorderly, repeatedly interweaving, stacking and covering, fully demonstrating the functional structure of time.
